For the start of the summer semester 2022, RWTHmoodle will be extended by some new functions. In particular, the list of participants has been redesigned. It now offers the option to invite external persons without RWTH user ID to the course room. The invitation email contains a coupon with which the invited persons can independently create an account for RWTHmoodle in the Identity Management of RWTH Aachen University. Interested teachers can test the plug-ins Attendance, Board, JSX Graph and Level Up! during a pilot phase. The demo course room for an overview of the RWTHmoodle functions has been fundamentally revised, and a new demo course room offers teachers best practices for good course design. A short training course introduces the new features. The RWTHmoodle help offers a compact overview of all new features and pilot plug-ins.
The CLS again offers a few online presentations for lecturers, presenting the new features hat have been lately madle available on RWTHmoodle for the start of the summer semester 2022. The presentation will include the new Moodle access for external participants and the plugin "Anonymous Forum", which can now be used in the course rooms by all managers. More information about the presentations and registration can be found here.
The course rooms for the summer semester 2022 are available since Monday, 07 February, 2022. Until the start of the semester, some improvements and new features will be made available. In addition, we invite interested teachers to test some new plugins in their course rooms. More information about this will be announced here in the next few weeks.
The weekly maintenance of RWTHmoodle will be brought forward to Thursday, 6:30-7:30 a.m., from now until the end of the exam period. This is to avoid collisions with online distance exams, for which information from RWTHmoodle course rooms may be needed.
